Upgrade to the latest version of TurboCAD Platinum 2021 or 2022
Upgrade your version of TurboCAD to TurboCAD Platinum 2021, or 2022
2021 or 2022
If your Pro/Platinum version is pre 2021, you have the option of upgrading to either 2021, or 2022. The difference between the versions is in the materials palette. 2021 uses LightWorks which has been in most of the previous versions. (Apart from a couple of years of RedSDK). It is quick and easy to understand and as far as I understand, works on all reasonably modern computers.
In 2022 LightWorks has been replaced with TurboLux. TurboLux needs setting up, it does not work ‘out of the box’. It has many settings, not all in the same place. It defaults to a grey background, which I’ve found impossible to change. (On the Forum, someone says to create a false wall behind your design and colour it white).
2022 will not read old LightWorks materials, so you would need to re-assign all your materials. I am told that the publisher’s are working on a converter for, but I do not have a date for this.
If the materials palette is an aspect of TC that you use, the system requirements are essential to read and understand.
TurboLux has specific requirements for taking advantage of your computer’s GPU (Graphics Processing Unit). When running TurboLux, the OpenCL (GPU-based) modes require an NVIDIA graphics card or GPU that supports either OpenCL 1.2 or later, or NVIDIA’s CUDA version 10.0 or later. It is recommended that you install the latest driver updates before using TurboLux rendering.
If the above makes no sense to you, you need to get someone to check out your computer before you buy or upgrade to 2022.
You can download a trial from www.turbocad.com, but if you do that and you wish to buy, you will need to buy from that site, I can not supply you, unless you can completely remove every trace of the trial from your computer, which is not easy, unless you have software to do it.
If you have any questions, you are welcome to call my mobile any time.
